    All things being equal, it is very good. For a Relais & Chateau, however, the service was fussy, the food was hit and miss, but the cocktails/wine were excellent. Glad I chose a la carte.

    I recommend stopping in at Menton's Gold Bar for a snack and a drink - get the foie gras frankfurter!

    The meal and service were excellent and deliver a worthy fine dining experience. Perhaps the best part was the mini bites in between courses and cheese cart before dessert.

    A four-course prix-fixe and chef's tasting menu are the only options available at Boston's only Relais & Chateaux restaurant. Come for a special occasion and be prepared to be pampered.

    chefs tasting menu is the way to go, be prepared to spend $$$$ but it is well worth it, every one of the 8 courses + the 6-7 random interludes made this one of the best meals I've ever had

    Menton is Barbara Lynch's crown jewel. After Kristen Kish, chef de cuisine at Lynch's demo kitchen Stir, won Top Chef, she was swiftly promoted to chef de cuisine at Menton. [Eater 38 Member]

    It was glorious. I would not recommend eating at 3pm for a 5pm reservation and then ordering the tasting menu with wine pairings.

    They'll customize the tasting menu (same course, multiple interpretations for table) - unparalleled service, fantastic cocktails (or go to Drink next door!), creative dishes. Truly top notch.

    The food at Menton is not night-and-day different from that at Lynch's No. 9 Park - it is more refined, lovelier and lighter, turned a few degrees more toward the sea. Read more
